UMBRELLA PROJECTS is a collaborative venture of the Owens Art Gallery and Struts Gallery & Faucet Media Arts Centre. It was initiated to facilitate new off-site programming during the pandemic and it seeks to support artists in reimagining their work outside the confines of the gallery. We invite artists from across Canada and abroad to submit proposals for the following:

OPEN CALL
We are accepting proposals for art projects to take place between now and the spring of 2021. These works should be presented outside the traditional gallery space while also taking into consideration safety precautions surrounding COVID-19. Rather than dictate the parameters of these works, our aim is to be responsive to artists, support their ideas, and provide funding and logistical support for their envisioned projects. Please note that artists that reside outside of the Atlantic Bubble cannot travel to Sackville and they should therefore propose projects that can be realized remotely. Proposals may include community projects, billboards, online activities, projects in print, speculative works, mail art, banners, posters, temporary public works, workshops, instructional works, public interventions, etc. Applications should include a one-page description of the proposed project, a budget, 10 images and/or links to past works, and a curriculum vitae. Artists will be paid fees consistent with the current CARFAC fee schedule.

Submissions should be sent via WeTransfer to info@umbrellaprojects.ca.

Deadline for submissions: 1 November 2020


ARTIST BROADSIDE
We are accepting proposals for a one-page, in-print artist project to be published in the winter issue of esse arts + opinions. Applications should include a mock-up of the proposed broadside as per the specs provided, along with a one-page description of the idea/concept, 10 images and/or links to past works, and a curriculum vitae. Artists will be paid fees consistent with the current CARFAC fee schedule.

Submissions should be sent via WeTransfer to info@umbrellaprojects.ca.

Deadline for submissions: 15 October 2020

We would like to acknowledge, honour, and pay respect to the traditional owners and custodians—from all four directions—of the land on which we live. It is upon the unceded, ancestral lands of the Mi’kmaq that the partnership Umbrella Projects has come into existence. While this area is known as Sackville, New Brunswick, it is part of Siknikt, a district of the greater territory of Mi’kma’ki. This territory is covered by the “Treaties of Peace and Friendship,” which the Mi’kmaq and Wolastoqiyik first signed with the British Crown in 1725.

Umbrella Projects gratefully acknowledges the support of John Murchie, the Rotary Club of Sackville, the Sheila Hugh Mackay Foundation, Mount Allison University, the Canada Council for the Arts, the New Brunswick Department of Tourism, Heritage and Culture, and the Town of Sackville. We sincerely thank our staff, members, student interns, volunteers, and supporters in the community of Sackville and the broader Atlantic region.
